Today is day 5 of the daily self check-in we’re doing this week & though I’m going to see this through until the end I would be remiss not to mention my deep sorrow and anger about what’s going on in the world right now. In fact it’s hard for me to talk about anything but. What happened in Georgia, the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, and what happened in Minneapolis, the murder of George Floyd is deplorable, and the sad thing is I could fill thousands of post with the names of fellow HUMANS who have been killed because of the color of their skin, or who they love, or what God they believe in. It’s disgusting that this is still happening in the year 2020, honestly it’s disgusting that it ever happened, but the fact that it’s still happening all these years after slavery, after the holocaust, WHY?
WE HAVE TO DO BETTER PEOPLE! WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON? WAKE UP! ENOUGH ALREADY!
Today, I want you to stop what you’re doing right now, take a deep breath, and ask… what can I do for my fellow humans? How can I help? How can I reach out? How can I let them know I care, I hear them, I see them, I support them, and I have their back? What do they need from me? Who can I reach out to make real change in this world?
These are all question I too am asking myself and I plan to do extensive research about what role I can play in ending of this deep hatred today!
I know it’s cheesy, but all I can think of are these lyrics from the Pink Floyd song, “On the Turning Away:”
“Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?”
The turning away must end today!
I’ll leave you with this poem from the beloved Nelson Mandela, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
That’s it for today, be the change you wish to see in the world, I’ll see you tomorrow ❤️
